The trained end-of-life caregiver and author Johanna Klug gives a stirring account of her encounters with dying people and how this raises awareness about life. We invited Johanna Klug to give a virtual reading to around 20 participants from the bereavement sector. This is Johanna's response to the numerous requests she has received to give a reading online. At the same time, the redesign of the farewell room is inaugurated for the first time.

The abstract virtual world initiates communal exchange and thus gives collective memory a space.
